VIRTUAL WORLDS DOCUMENTARY Directed by: Olivia De Camps Produced by: Tom Sidi ABOUT THE PROJECT Every day, all around the world, millions of people log onto virtual worlds such as Second Life. Through a series of individual stories, this documentary aims to explore the core of basic human interaction. For many individuals, virtual worlds not only serve as escapism, but also morph into an expansion of their real life— where genuine friendships are formed, economy thrives, and often romance is built upon a virtual image that is frequently transferred to the real world. Users have the ability to immerse in the world they have always dreamed of living in, exploring their gender, racial, or sexual identity and creating strong bonds with people they might never get a chance to meet off screen. As we have been stuck at home without a possibility to physically meet, the idea of a digital world has become even more attractive. The documentary is directed by Olivia De Camps, a Dominican-American film student in her Senior year at New York University Tisch School of The Arts and produced by Tom Sidi, a TV and commercial producer. The film will be submitted to film festivals and uploaded online. CASTING Through interviews (all filmed digitally due to COVID) and re-enactments on SL, we are searching for stories to tell from an experiential, non-judgmental and visually-driven way. Tell us your story! How has SL been a world for you in quarantine? Has it helped you find your identity? Did you form a special relationship on the platform If you're an artist, do you come here to share your works (design clothes, host virtual raves, digital photography)? We are looking for people who would like to share their SL experiences with us during or before quarantine. You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish. For any questions or additional information, you can reach us at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi all, I am doing a VERY special Valentine's Day video profiling THREE couples who fell in love through Second Life & stayed together. Who has great stories and is cool with being on camera? CONTACT ME as soon as you can here or in-world ! The turnaround on this video is fast & deadline for identifying the protagonists is JANUARY 18th. It will be in my typical style meaning: privacy preserved by NOT mentioning any real life names or location. If you feel uneasy appearing in front of the [real life] camera = let us talk and see if we find a workaround. Some RL footage weaved into these videos is very powerful I found but I completely understand the apprehension here and I am committed to giving an equal voice to folks who only want to speak via their avatar embodiment. Thank you!! DD PS: if you are not familiar with my videos here is the full playlist http://bit.ly/draxfiles & the recent feature length documentary can be seen at http://draxtor.com/ourdigitalselves
